The #Broncos are in talks to trade for #Redskins S Su’a Cravens, sources say. They are the team most interested and the likely landing spot for the talented former 2nd rounder, though no deal is done yet.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 28, 2018
The Su’a Cravens saga could soon be over for the Redskins. Ian Rapoport is reporting the Denver Broncos are talking to the Redskins about a trade for Cravens. Nothing is confirmed yet, and rumors fly at the NFL Scouting Combine, but this isn’t the first report of the Redskins looking to trade him.
Cravens missed the 2017 season after telling the team he planned to retire, but being talked out of it be the front office. The Redskins originally placed Cravens on the exempt/left squad list, a day after reports came out he would be reporting back to the team. Cravens agent stated that his client was medically cleared to return to football in December after seeing a concussion specialist. Cravens suffered a concussion and biceps injury during his rookie season, and had knee surgery following an injury during a preseason game last year.
He also sought treatment at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center while away from the team last year for lingering effects from a concussion suffered in his rookie season. His agent released a statement in December saying he had been medically cleared to return to football.
Cravens applied for reinstatement to the NFL on February 12th, and was reinstated two days later. Some Redskins coaches and players reportedly had a problem with the way he handled the situation, and many speculated even if he returned, the team would move on. The Redskins are looking to get some kind of return for a 2nd round pick that played in 11 games, starting 3, in his only season with the team. The compensation wouldn’t be as high as they would want, likely a conditional mid-late pick or a player a team is planning on moving on from.
Denver had 1st round grade on Cravens prior to 2016 draft. Broncos hold two 3rd round picks, two 4th round picks and two 5th round picks in 2018 Draft.. Plenty of chances to make deal.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) February 28, 2018
"There’s still a mistrust between him and the front office," @Mr_Henson51 tells @NickAshooh & @ABC7Erin. "Everybody that played knows that Bruce is all about exacting revenge on his terms." https://t.co/ZWRFbGrVxN— 106.7 The Fan (@1067theFan) February 23, 2018
